Forum: netlabels Subject: EARLabs feature: An Interview with GULTSKRA ARTIKLER


Introductory Text:

"To be honest, when I first ran across this experimental music project known as Gultskra Artikler in late 2003 I didn’t really understand what Alexey Devyanin was trying to do. His first release on Autoplate mysteriously titled “Gruppa Turistov”, which Sebastian Redenz once described as some “experimental weirdness” came across as very peculiar to my way of thinking. In retrospect, those abstract, sample-based collages of field recordings, voices, instruments, and found sounds blended with both musical and atonal textures challenged my myopic view of music at the time. A combination of lots of listening and a revealing email conversation have given me a deeper appreciation what Gultskra Artikler is all about."
